on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it easier to raise, they are saying between $40 to $50. so there is a smaller nature. that's historically consistent. inaugural speeches tend to be over hyped and anti-climactic, and the second one, even more so. >> thanks. >> a look back at the president's first term and a look ahead, when we come back. >> this is fox new
end up defining president obama's foreign policy over the next four years. it's a real challenge, folks, and one that doesn't get enough attention. >>> we're going to stick with the foreign policy theme. this week we're meeting one of our new members of congress. today we're talking to tammy duckworth from illinois. she'll lean heavily on her own military credentials and experience to knock off a tea party incumbent, joe walsh. duckworth is one of 16 iraq or afghanistan veterans in the new congress. and one of the first two female combat veterans ever to serve. she made national headlines when she talked about being wounded in iraq during a speech at the 2008 democratic convention and told the story again in 2012. >> a rocket-propelled grenade hit our helicopter, exploding in my lap, ripping off one leg, crushing the other, and tearing my right arm apart. but i kept trying to fly until i passed out. and in that moment, my survival and the survival of my entire crew depended on all of us pulling together. their heroism is why i'm alive today. >> she lost both legs and part of the
geithner. lew is a democratic veteran of washington, 30 years of service. currently he is president obama's chief of staff. earlier lew served as his budget director, and in that job he raised republican hackles. in fact, jeff sessions of alabama, the ranking republican on the senate budget committee, has already said he will try to block mr. lew's confirmation, notably over a statement lew made two years ago. lew was then omb, office of management and budget director. "our budget will get us over the next several years to the point where we can look the american people in the money th speaking to this, senator sessions had this to say. "to look the american people in the eye and make such a statement remains the most direct and important false assertion during ng my entire t in washington, unquote. >> question is jacob lew a shoe- in for treasury secretary or does president obama have a fight on his hand? >> i don't know if you would call him a shoe-in. he is going to be touched up a bit by the republicans but he is going to be confirmed. does obama have a fight object his hands? you bet
has waned after four tough economic years. what happened? what is next? >> we gather on this date because we have chosen hope over fear. unity of purpose over conflict and discord. >> president obama swept into the presidency on the wings of change, the pick of an energized electorate, the first african-american president. he started on day one with action on an early promise. his order to close the facility at guantanamo bay in one year. >> is this a separate executive order with respect to how we will dispose of the detainees? >> gitmo remains open almost four years to the day after that signing. >> as he said on the trail in 2008 and 2012, the economy was the job won. >> the bill is passed. >> president obama had big hopes for the $787 billion stimulus bill which squeaked through congress in february of 2009 with just three republicans in the senate and no one in the house of representatives voting for it. >> the most sweeping economic recovery package to our history. i hope this investment will ignite our imagination. >> he was calling for the bailout of automakers, general mo
is making -- >> now these apps that 4-year-olds can use after these commercials that target the obama children politically, those numbers, i think, are going to continue to break. i'm telling you, robert gibbs, these people are causing serious damage to their brand and more importantly to the cause of the second amendment. >> i absolutely don't disagree. i mean, i think they have done more so set back their own cause. but let's peer through some of the twisted logic in some of what they've done. i mean, the notion from wayne lapierre that the only way to match a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, why do we provide the bad guys with the type of weapons that they use in afghanistan? why are we -- why are we dependent upon having a good guy with a gun? we're depending on that, in their logic, because we've decided that what we -- what we hunt the taliban with is okay to have in your neighborhood. that doesn't make any sense. >> and by the way, robert, on that front -- >> i'll say this. you and i are from the south, right? >> right. >> hunting is important. i was never a hunter,

. the republican . -- the republican line. caller: mr. obama, they say it is not his fault. he has had for years. he said he would cut the deficit in half. they passed the deficit a year ago, about cutting this. why is it not being cut now? i have been told both sides are not getting along, but he is the president, and he needs to lead. i do not understand how there are billions of dollars across the world to different countries. i know we do that for specific reasons, but we should be using some of that money to pay our deficits off. what i do not understand is, why are we continuing to do that, to help everybody else out and we should be taking care of our own country? host: let me show you the front page of the new york times. if we can move over -- we will move it over, here it is right here, a wide shot -- will be focusing on senator hagel in a couple of minutes and looking back at some of the things he has said over his tenure in the u.s. senate. that line from "the new york times" -- also from "the hartford courant" -- "the arizona republic repor" -- some local stories, beginning with "th
